Abstract: Tisaleo canton in Ecuador produces 1893.55 tons of blackberry (rubus glaucus) per year. In this work, the design of a blackberry pulp production plant is presented, using the systematic layout planning methodology, which allows to identify, assess and visualize all the elements involved in the implantation and the relationships between these. Within the methodology, the location is established at the micro-level where the qualitative method by points is used, the material flow analysis is performed through the from/to chart, the triangular diagram is developed, the necessary total area is determined through the Guerchet methodology, the space relationship diagram is carried out, and three alternatives are established and evaluated for the distribution. Based on the ideal alternative, the equipment is designed using SolidWorks software, the plant is modeled in 2D and 3D through the 3ds Max and AutoCAD software creating a 360° render, that evidence the design and distribution of the ideal plant.
